A previously little known writer for satirical websites has broken all records at legendary satirical spoofery website TheSpoof.com by racking up a mind boggling 200 million hits in three hours.
Site administrators were left agog as the hits piled in and the site went into meltdown. CEO Mark Lowton told us:
"We were left agog as the hits piled in and the site went into meltdown."
With the assistance of a little detective work from Inspector Morse, the culprit was soon discovered and was allegedly cheating.
The writer, 'Frickface' was found to have been piling up the points by using NASA based technology, even though nobody was actually reading the stories.
'Frickface' however was unrepentant when confronted. He told us at the door of his trailer in Alabama:
"Yeah, I cheated. So what? I was just sick and tired of seeing the same old names at the top of the most popular list. Queen Mudder, BuckwheatsButt, Abel Rodriguez, Bureau, Monkey Woods, so I posted three stories. One about an old woman who lived in a shoe, one about three bears, and one about the man with the world's largest penis and the woman with the world's largest vagina getting axed by a TV channel. Then I put the technology to work and got to number one. So I didn't play fair. So what? I got my name to the top of the tree. And the numbers for the biggest cock/vagina stories were genuine."
Some Spoof writers were reportedly furious about the dubious tactics employed. One, Skoob1999 told us:
"It's sickening. I've done over 500 stories on this great site, some good, some not so good. Actually, most of them were utter crap, but there's no excuse for this 'Frickface' person to come along and abuse the system like that."
More Spoof related scurrilousness as we get it.
